16 Glossary New to Windchill? Here are some important terms and concepts you should know: Actions: Performing a task against an object or table in Windchill is called an action. Actions are available from Icons on a table s toolbar, the Actions menu on information pages and toolbars, and right-click Actions menu on rows in tables. CAD documents: CAD files (for example, models or drawings) are managed in Windchill as CAD documents. CAD documents and their structures can be associated to Windchill parts. A CAD document is the CAD designer s view of the design, and a Windchill part is the rest of the enterprise s view of the same design. For example, AML/AVL information is only associated with the corresponding Windchill part. This associative relationship enables CAD structures to automatically build part structures. New with Windchill 10.0 is top-down design (TDD), allowing part structures to build CAD structures. Change Management: Windchill functionality that manages issues and improvements to products and processes via a robust, closed-loop system. Changes can be identified, tracked and viewed across the enterprise. The entire enterprise can then assess how these changes in product data will affect different teams. Commonspace: A collective term for the data that is not in a user s workspace. The Folder Browser is Windchill s equivalent of the commonspace in Pro/INTRALINK. Contexts: Contexts can be thought of as separate data vaults. There are three main types of contexts in Windchill: Products: A product is typically thought of as the physical item manufactured and sold to customers. Windchill expands the concept of a product to include the environment in which users collaborate to develop parts. Information Pages: An information page is used to access information about, and perform actions on, a particular object. Objects: An object is a generic name for business data that is added to, and managed in, the Windchill system. For example, a part, a CAD document, and a Windchill document are all Windchill objects. Occurences: An occurrence in Windchill is a database object that stores information about one named usage of a part within a part structure. Roles: A role determines the access privileges that users have and what they are allowed to do within contexts. Manager, reviewer, observer, or approver are all examples of roles. Tables: Information about multiple objects is commonly presented in tables. Because some tables can contain large quantities of data, you can define a view to display just the objects and columns that you want to see. Versions, Revisions, and Iterations: When you save an object in Windchill for the first time, you create the first version of it. In Windchill, most objects are assigned a revision and iteration. Together, the revision and iteration define the object s version. For example, if A.1 is the version, A is the revision and 1 is the iteration. Revision A.1 Version Iteration Workspace: A workspace is a private area where you can manage your CAD work and perform CAD data management operations. Libraries: A library is typically a vault for common parts, models and documents. Projects: A project is a virtual location into which you invite people to collaborate as a project team. Projects are ad-hoc collaboration spaces, as opposed to Products and Libraries, which allow you more control of product development processes. 2011, Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC).
